I'm expecting baby #2 due in June. According to the ultrasound, the baby is expected to be born with a birth defect that will require surgery (and maybe more than one). We have an appointment with a specialist for the specific surgeries. Does the insurance list me as the patient for any appointments BEFORE the baby is born (like these consultations and appointments)? Then AFTER the baby is born, the baby becomes the patient?
ETA: I know this seems like a dumb question. Obviously my prenatal appointments are for me and then after that the specific medical things are for the baby. But I guess my specific question is that my appointments are for issues related to the baby and his condition and what will happen after he's born.
